Mark Ronson’s Record Collection Out Now

Mark Ronson is back, and this time more than ever he means business – The Business INTL, in fact. Record Collection is the third album headed up by the trans-Atlantic music mastermind and, as usual, he’s brought a host of talented friends and mainstay collaborators along for the ride: Ghostface Killah, Q-Tip, MNDR, Boy George, D’Angelo, Nick Hodgson of the Kaiser Chiefs, Duran Duran’s Simon Le Bon, The Zutons’ Dave McCabe, Spank Rock, Elinor Dougall, Jake Shears of Scissor Sisters, Cathy Dennis, Miike Snow frontman Andrew Wyatt, and more.

By now, half the globe is already familiar with the lead-in single “Bang Bang Bang,” a 3am Cote d’Azur disco beat featuring Q-Tip and MNDR that takes the French nursery rhyme “Alouette” and turns it into a Jean Michel Jarre meets NYC hip-pop sing-along. 2010 just got a lot more fun.

Mark Ronson Remixes

By now, you’ve surely heard Mark Ronson & the Business INTL‘s lead-in single “Bang Bang Bang”.  It’s become a smash hit everywhere, from Japan to Australia, France to Finland.  This disco number featuring Q-Tip and MNDR vamps up the French nursery rhyme “Alouette,” creating a NYC hip-hop sing-along with a twist of je ne sais quoi.  The new batch of remixes for “Bang Bang Bang” features Russ Chimes, SBTRKT, and Count & Sinden.

Another must-hear remix is Major Lazer‘s transformation of the originally breezy “Bike Song” from cutesy to sexy.  Major Lazer focuses on Spank Rock’s verse for the song’s total makeover into a club bumpin’ techno beat.

The Electrolightz Remix Yvette Rovira + MP3

The Electrolightz are at it again, and now, with the help of newcomer Yvette Rovira.  The well-known pop-electro-hip-hop group have been on a popular remix streak with Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” and “Bad Romance,” Mary J Blige’s “I Am”, La Roux’s “Bulletproof”, and now Yvette Rovira’s “Let’s Go Out Tonight”.  With a bit of the Electrolightz energy and spunk, the party anthem “Let’s Go Out Tonight” from her self-titled album Yvette Rovira becomes a real club banger to keep you out ’til the sun comes up.

Working with producer Rob Mounsey (Rihanna, Mary J. Blige), emerging artist Yvette Rovira has strong musical talents flavored with Latin-inspired percussion, funk and old-school R&B references, all sung with a distinctive power and passion.
